I am sewing, I run back and forth to the pantry room,
where my ironing board resides. Too much trouble.
I remembered, years ago I bought an old antique wooden
ironing board at an estate sale.. It has been in my closet,
for years.. here is the transformation:
|Layers and layers of old fabric.. And underneath|
all that was a wool ironing board cover
but it was crackling and dry rotted.
All of this came off.
| I laid out several layers of quilting cotton on the floor|
and laid the ironing board on top.. I cut around the
cotton, leaving enough to wrap over and tack
it to the board.
|Here is my finished antique ironing board. A new|
life has begun for it.
|On the wooden legs, I saw that it said,|
National Washboard Company.. Wonder
when and where , it came from???
